    Hey guys, I figured rather than threadjack the heck out of Ehuda's thread and other teching threads, I'd make my own little "journal" so to speak. This "journal" will encompass all my personal builds, some builds for customers, and some experimental items. I will try and include as much raw data, pictures, and detailed information as possible while keeping it easy on the eyes and easy to read.

    Anyways, first, let's start off with my planned projects for next year (2013) in order of importance. I'll post parts lists for them when I have time. This list is current as of 11 Nov 2012.

    -WE HK416 (bastardized of course)
    -KJW P226 (once again, bastardized)
    -G&P MagPul CQB-R (DSG'd)
    -Some kind of DMR AEG with an IER hop. Most likely going SR25 with an EV2

    That about sums up my planned projects which, if I'm lucky, I should get done. Now, let's get into what my current personal projects are.

    -The Infamous DD/MagPul M4
    -KJW M700 converted to an M40A1
    -12.5" CQB M4

    These projects are all nearing completion; they're just missing one or two parts each. Hopefully I have time to get them together by the time January hits as I want to start on something new. Lol. I'll post up some other things later on today.

    The original m40 had a wood stock. So are you specifically making the M40A3 or A5.

    You got a little too close to your pick up tooth for my liking, especially for a SHS body. They have a high failure rate right at that point.

    You can probably get away with it with the stronger Lonex Reds, but even then, I still stay away...
